The Weekend Wrap-Up: All NEW Target & Drugstore Deals, Halloween Deals, FREE Stuff, Amazon Deals + Much More for Less!

You can check out previous Daily Digests too, I keep a week’s worth of deals here.

I’ve changed the format of this a bit to make it easier for you to QUICKLY see the NEWEST Deals for the day (or Weekend Wrap-Ups.) I was struggling with how best to keep some of the previous deals around that were still good, without making it cumbersome to find that day’s New Deals. It seemed a shame to just delete some of the deals after a day that were still really good and long-term. But, I also want you to be able to quickly check on the newest ones, too! So, deals from the SAME day (or weekend wrap-up for 3-days) will be at the very top. Deals that you may want to reference later will follow.

In my Penny Pantry Facebook Group, I post many deals & info. throughout the day including freebies, deal updates & changes, Amazon Deals, meals & recipes, food discounts I run across + more! Some are more timely than others: the Amazon Warehouse Deals tend to come and go quickly, so Facebook is a good platform for me to let you know about those deals quickly.

Posts here on my website take longer to write and deliver, so I primarily use it for Weekly Grocery Deals, and other deals I think you may want to reference later. But, I’d like to bridge that gap as not everyone is on Facebook. Plus, it may be nice to have the Daily Deals together, as the Facebook feeds don’t run exclusively chronologically.

So, I’ll try this out and see how it goes! Please let me know if you think this will be useful as a companion to my Facebook posts. And, if you’re on Facebook and haven’t joined our group yet, I hope you will join and become part of our active, supportive vegan community! <3 Amy

Note on photos: Some may be illustrative of a product, but not the actual product. For example, I may use a general photo of apples I took to report on a sale on apples.

Happy Saving!

I’ll be adding new deals later today, too, so check back! You can view all the Circle Offers here, there are some good ones! A few will come later as One-Day Deals, info. in my Target Weekly Deals.
  • Target: The BIG Circle Event Starts Sunday! A few of the deals will be ONE Day only, including the 30% off Halloween candy and 40% off costumes. Details here at the top of my post.
  • Target Ad Sneak Peek! This is the flyer for sales that start Sunday, 9/19. There is an upcoming HUGE Circle Event, 100’s of items will be in “category” % off, like 20% off cereal, 40% off Halloween costumes, etc. Take a peek here:
  • Target: If you find avocados like I did for $.55, pay just $.30 ea. with our printable avocado coupon!
  • At just $1 per box, these Sour Patch Zombie Boxes would be a nice frugal addition to vegan “switch witch” Halloween candy for your kiddos.

Walgreen’s, Rite Aid & CVS


  • Purple Carrot: If you are a new customer, I have a $30 promocode to share with you. This is better than the $20 code on their site. Use code CARROT30 to get $30 off your 1st order! You can check out their menus here:
  • $1 off TruWhip Coupon
  • Sunday Newspaper Coupons: Only one insert today, only vegan are a couple of tomato products. I’ll add these to last week’s post.

Grocery Stores

  • Safeway: Fresh sourdough and French loaves $1 ea. if you have the app coupon! It’s unlimited for the month.
  • Safeway: More stuff I spotted today – Not shown are Boca Burgers that were on sale $3.99 and we have a $1 Ibotta, lots of veggie meats clearance at my local store. I also had a $1 Gardein app coupon saved (sales on those but not pictured), Morningstar clearance too and got lucky with peelie coupons.
  • Sprouts – It’s a Great Week for Deals! There’s the $5 off $30 coupon that will really sweeten all the deals and can be used with other coupons, rebates, etc.
  • Reminder: Great deal on these bars at Sprouts – Just $1.20 ea. for Choclove Chocolate Bars. These could be nice treats for your kids at Halloween, many are vegan.
  • Safeway: We have a Flash Sale! Vegan items include frozen fruit bars, popcorn bags and granola. All just under $2 ea. Save the coupons in the app to get the deals:
  • Safeway: I got the $.97/lb. Peaches and Plums today, Large Watermelon $3.99. Just use your Safeway card for the 1st two, the watermelon requires a coupon. Deals good thru Tuesday:

Online Groceries

  • Chef’Store Warehouse: We tried out Pickup Ordering yesterday. The minimum order is $150, so we stocked up on Torani coffee syrups. These are half the price of Safeway, my local store sells bottles that are half this size for the same price! These large bottles are $5.19 ea. I also got 25 lb. bags of pinto and black beans. It was not easy for me to get to $150, I got a lot! I always shop for the ” lowest price” that I’ve determined with my Price Book.
  • Our Chef’Store Warehouse has Vevan Cheese! They also had shreds, and mozzarella. You can shop in-store, do Order Pickup on their website, or get delivery via Instacart or Shipt.
  • NEW! SkinnyPop Microwave Popcorn Bags, Healthy Snacks Microwavable Bags, Butter, 2.8 Oz, (Pack of 3). Certified vegan, butter flavor is non-dairy. Available to order via Whole Foods Online.

Halloween & Fall Stuff

  • I spotted these vegan Fall creamers and coffees at Target, but other stores will also have these and more. Last year, we found some amazing deals at Grocery Outlet on vegan holiday creamers!
  • Target: Deets on the upcoming fantastic Halloween Candy Deal – ONE Day Only! On Tuesday, we’ll have a Circle Offer for 30% off Halloween Candy priced at $9.99 and $15.99. Our large bags of Sour Patch/Swedish Fish encompass these price points. These 100 ct. bags will be just $6.99 after the Circle, and the 180 ct. ones will be $11.19! We got these bags last year on a similar deal, such a great deal! Trick-or-Treating may look different in your neighborhood due to COVID, last year many of our neighbors set candy out for kids to help themselves. A couple of creative ones even had a socially distanced “launch”. Tuesday is the day for this deal, and I’ll post reminders. Can order online, too. If you don’t have Circle yet, I think there’s still a $5 FREE when you sign up initially.
